REPCO BEACH HOP 19 VE­HI­CLE EN­TRY

NZV8 - - LOCAL GOSSIP -

Ve­hi­cle en­try for Repco Beach Hop 19 opened on the beach­hop.co.nz web­site about a month ago, at 7am on 1 Oc­to­ber. As al­ways, it drew a mas­sive re­sponse, with a stag­ger­ing 450 cars en­tered in the first 15 min­utes and 700 by 10am. With en­try lim­ited to 1000 ve­hi­cles made be­fore 1972, the Beach Hop team may also ac­cept en­tries for US-made ve­hi­cles up to 1985, on ap­pli­ca­tion. And not just that, but thanks to the sup­port of their won­der­ful spon­sors, they have also pur­chased this 1967 Ford Galaxie as the ma­jor prize and pro­mo­tional ve­hi­cle for Repco Beach Hop 19. It was im­ported from the US to New Zealand last Novem­ber and reg­is­tered with a WOF. The two-door coupe runs a 390ci V8 en­gine with au­to­matic trans­mis­sion, but will nat­u­rally be given a Beach Hop makeover to show­case the event’s spon­sors’ prod­ucts, and will def­i­nitely be a prize worth win­ning!
